SkyWest in employee drug-testing fine

The FAA has announced the levying of a $295,750 civil penalty against SkyWest Airlines for allegedly violating DOT drug and alcohol testing regulations.

The FAA alleges SkyWest failed to include more than 150 “safety-sensitive” employees in its random drug testing pool.  SkyWest also allegedly failed to receive verified negative drug test results for two other employees before placing them in safety-sensitive positions.

The FAA also alleges SkyWest subjected three employees who were not in safety-sensitive positions to post-accident drug tests that are only applicable to safety-sensitive employees, and improperly cancelled a return-to-duty test because it was not directly observed.

SkyWest is set to have an informal conference with the FAA this month to discuss the issue.
